ZPE Systems Announces ZPE Cloud, Cloud Based Configuration and Management Platform for Branch Networks

Sponsored by Businesswire

ZPE Systems, Inc., a leading provider of software-defined,
vendor-neutral open infrastructure management solutions, today unveiled
the ZPE Cloud, the company’s new cloud based configuration and
management platform specifically designed for branch networks. In
addition, ZPE Systems also announced two new branch infrastructure
hardware solutions, Nodegrid Link SR and Nodegrid Gate SR to be released
alongside the ZPE Cloud.

The ZPE Cloud ( simplifies branch infrastructure deployment
with a variety of key features for remote provisioning and ongoing
configuration across multiple locations. The ZPE Cloud eliminates the
need to ship pre-configured devices to the branch. “Not only does the
ZPE Cloud provide a secure and consistent deployment management platform
for the branch, it also neutralizes the threat of device theft leading
to a backdoor to the network,” said Arnaldo Zimmermann, CEO of ZPE
Systems, Inc. “The beauty of the ZPE Cloud lies in its ability to store
configuration and deploy data online, making branch deployment as simple
as establishing a connection and applying the proper configuration. The
process gets even better with Cloud Zero Touch Provisioning. Power up
your branch devices and the ZPE Cloud will auto-provision them for you,”
said Zimmermann.

Along with the ZPE Cloud announcement comes two new networking solutions
to provide out of band access, Nodegrid Link SR and Nodegrid Gate SR.
The solutions are the latest in the company’s branch network product
portfolio, the Nodegrid SR line, which provides users with the
capability to establish a 24×7 remote virtual presence throughout the

Nodegrid Link SR serves as the link to connectivity within the branch.
“Link SR is a compact infrastructure management and connectivity
solution that can be placed in an optimal location for connectivity.
Link SR can be powered via PoE and combines routing capabilities via
cellular & Wi-Fi to link your branch location to the Internet,” said Jim
Wilson, VP of Sales at ZPE Systems, Inc. “Link SR can be the first
device deployed in your branch environment and when paired with the ZPE
Cloud, can get your entire branch location up and running, regardless of
the vendors you choose.”

Nodegrid Gate SR extends ZPE’s data center expertise and innovation to
the branch, providing the agility and performance that the modern branch
requires. “Gate SR addresses modern branch needs with a fully functional
network gateway, with network function virtualization, multiple
connectivity failover methods (including cellular with dual SIM
support), smart environmental monitoring, actionable data and IoT/M2M
application support,” said Zimmermann. Nodegrid Gate SR brings
additional flexibility to the branch with a truly converged
infrastructure management solution. Provide power to cameras, IP phones,
access points and more via the PoE+ ports and run their Guest OS, Docker
or Kubernetes applications directly on the Gate SR. Environmental
sensors, door alarms and more can be connected to the GPIO ports as
well, and combined with Nodegrid’s automation tools, end users can
collect and act upon sensor data to maximize uptime and alleviate issues
before they arise.

The SR family products along with the ZPE Cloud bring a simple and
robust solution to deploying and managing branch networks. ZPE Cloud,
Nodegrid Link SR and Nodegrid Gate SR, are available to select beta
customers today with general availability in Q4 of 2019. Contact
